Abstract

In Islam, women are financially secured regarding to earning responsibility and men are liable for this duty. Beyond this general declaration of Islam, there is an Islamic domain which offers women to work as a professional. A number of professional women within Muslim societies earn money due to different causes. Several studies highlight that professional females within Muslim societies are facing numerous challenges like harassment, gender biasness, time shortage and burden of secondary responsibilities. The most of the challenges are caused by the impact of Western feminism on Muslim societies. The majority of these professional women are especially impressed by Western feminism. Western feminism has its materialistic impact on Muslim women which make them confused about their actual responsibilities. Another group of professional women within Muslim societies are compelled to earn money by some financial restrains which identify that a few Muslim women are being deprived some of their rights. There are also a number of women within Muslim societies who are part of professionalism because of Islamic motivation. This study argues that the concept of Western feminism is not applicable on Muslim societies. This study claims that Islam does not set financial responsibility for women, but they are motivated to become professional within a certain domain. This study aims to highlight Islamic domain for professional women within Muslim societies which is secured for them from challenges. Further, this study seeks the solutions of challenges though the perceptive of Islamic Feminism. Islamic Feminism calls for Islamic rights of women within Muslim societies.
